Dr Julie Helmrich finished answering questions about the school shootings that she had received via email, face-to-face, and on the Shrink n Drink Facebook page.  Questions included: 1) how can people say this is not about gun control? are they insane, 2) why did he shoot little children? why?why? 3) what should I tell my children? 4) Why is the shooter always a young, white man? 5) thanks for acknowledging teachers, 6) why did he shoot in the face, 7) how do I get the images out of my head and stop crying, 8) how will I ever feel safe sending my kids back to school? 9) why didn't he just kill HIMSELF? 10) How are the parents of the kids in that school ever going to be able to get the kids to go back to that school? 11) What about the teachers who were there? how will they be able to help the kids and still deal with their own trauma? 12) Where does all the rage come from in these young men and how do we help them before they grab the household assault rifle and go off the deep end, 13) the national narrative on who does this and why is unsophisticated.
